Research assessments

Eindhoven University of Technology places great value on quality assurance in research. We therefore periodically invite external experts to assess all research carried out at TU/e.

Standard Evaluation Protocol

The assessment is performed on the basis of the Standard Evaluation Protocol for Public Research Organisations (SEP). This protocol was drawn up by the KNAW (Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences), NWO (Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) and VSNU (Association of Universities in the Netherlands), and is used in all research assessments carried out under their responsibility. The SEP protocol was defined in 2003 and was reviewed and updated in 2009 (see SEP 2009-2015).

Joint assessments

TU/e strives for maximum collaboration with other universities to ensure simultaneous assessment of research in the same fields. Where joint assessments are not possible, research groups are assessed individually.
